On Being Graceful

When I first started dancing again in August, I honestly felt like a cross between an octopus and a slug. My coordination was more than a little awkward and I could barely lift my heels of the ground, never mind jump. It’s just about two months later and I feel like I’ve accomplished something. I…

What’s So Amazing About Grace?

Being the nerd that I am, I went to one of my favorite books: What’s So Amazing About Grace? by Philip Yancey. I love the way Yancey writes for two reasons: 1) you feel like you’re chatting with a friend and 2) he says things as they are and admits that life can get messy.…

This Is When The Leaving Begins

In three weeks, we’ll be gone. It’s a sad/scary thing to say goodbye to the people who have been our family for the last few years. The worst part is not knowing when you’ll see your best friends again. Some of them are Air Force and will leave the area eventually and others aren’t planning…

Grief is Real

Sometimes I start to doubt that grief is real. Part of my brain wants to reason it away as the excuse I have for being emotional at times. And the rest of my brain squashes that part down and remembers that loss causes a huge stress on our hearts and minds and it’s okay to…
